Hometown Heroes: Old Republic Kitchen + Bar

Hometown Heroes: Old Republic Kitchen + Bar

It’s refreshing to see so many places giving back to our community. Being able to provide support to one another proves why the Elgin area is a great place to live. We’ve seen unity, inspiration and community even while practicing social distancing. Old Republic Kitchen + Bar is definitely contributing to this effort.


When it comes to support, Old Republic has been consistently providing. Since closing their dining area they’ve created an initiative where they have been bringing support directly to the doors of local health care facilities. On April 11th Old Republic made a special delivery to AMITA Saint Joesph Hospital in Elgin. Providing a free lunch to support our health care workers was their way of saying thank you for all you do. After speaking with them about this initiative, it was expressed that this is all part of a greater purpose. They wish to continue to show their gratitude and support and Old Republic has kept true on their word.

They have also provided free meals to all three Dundee Animal Hospital locations. Old Republic felt those who are working to keep our pets happy and healthy also deserved some love. After all, they have continued to provide excellent care for our four-legged family members and have gone out of their way to do so. Extending the love to all health care workers was something Old Republic was happy to do.

We’re very proud of Old Republic Kitchen + Bar for expressing their gratitude and giving our community support. They wish to continue to give back as time goes on.

Another added bonus is that while Old Republic fills our stomaches, we can also tune in for some entertainment! Trivia nights are a big thing at Old Republic and people miss spending an evening having some good food and playing trivia. And you still can, Old Republic has taken their trivia nights to the web. Check out their Facebook page to stay up to date on when to tune in for future stay at home live trivia nights. Pair that with a pick up order or free delivery, and you can enjoy a full night with Old Republic at home. As time goes on, it’s great to see how Old Republic continues to entertain us while we remain safe and practice social distancing. It shows how much they care about their patrons and evolving to continue to be there like they always have been.
